Hello Debbie xx I've had times when eating even the softest and smallest thing has seemed like the biggest and hardest thing that I need to do xx When this happens, it's usually because something else is in the mix, such as an infection or an incredible amount of stress and upset xx At these times, I tend to stick with something such as soups as they don't tend to need as much effort to get into me as a cooked meal does xx

It might be worth making an appt to see your GP as well, just to be sure there isn't something unknown at work and making you feel like this xx They may also be able to put you in touch with someone who could advise you about what you could try to have if you find yourself feeling like this again as whilst I'm aware that there are a lot of meal replacements available, I wouldn't know where to begin in suggesting something to try unfortunately xx

Hi Debbie

Yes, sometimes it seems even chewing is an effort. When I was first diagnosed, I used to be falling asleep eating my dinner.
I have to say, that once I got the meds sorted, everyrhing improved.
I started taking B Complex with B 12, and I've found that to be a great help with the tiredness.

Much Love
